Don’t miss Bring Me the Horizon featuring three-time Epiphone Signature Artist Lee Malia on tour in the U.S. this spring. BMTH are supporting their new album, amo, and recently announced a new tour kick off on May 5 in Jacksonville, Florida with scheduled shows in Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and the Sonic Temple Festival in Columbus, Ohio on May 19 with Foo Fighters, System of a Down, and Epi fans Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Read our recent interview with Mr. Malia and check out his trio of extraordinary “Artisan” Signature models: The Les Paul Custom, the RD Custom, and the Explorer Custom

“The main thing (I use) is pretty much my Epiphone. I’m so used to it," Malia told Epiphone.com. "When I want a specific tone, I know exactly where on the guitar to go—which pickup I need, where the tone should be, if I should use the coil tap, because I know the guitar so well. I know how to find the specific sound. It’s like the main instrument for the whole cd, guitar wise. 
 
I mainly used the Les Paul.  As I’ve said, I’ve been playing that now since it came out and before that, I went out with the prototype.  I use the Les Paul quite a lot but for certain songs I did use the Explorer as it’s a bit tighter sounding for certain things. We definitely experimented with the different guitar shapes because they do all have a slightly different sound. I don’t know why that is. I suppose it’s different weights and woods and pieces (laughs).”
